Brown Sugar Sauce Recipe Card Front

The front of the recipe card for Brown Sugar Sauce.

This brown sugar sauce recipe was recorded on a piece of paper and in pencil unlike the other recipes contained in the vintage brown wood recipe box.

The author mostly wrote her recipes on an index card with a blue fountain pen.

Did the author get it from a friend?

Was she visiting a friend or relative who gave her a piece of paper to write down one of their recipes?

A brown sugar sauce is normally used to complement bread pudding, cheesecake, ice cream, and other desserts. How do you like to use it?

My only comment would be to cook this over medium to low heat and watch carefully as it would be easy for the brown sugar to “bolt” and harden to a mess to clean up in your pan.
